Guest access

NTU staff and students visiting other institutions


NTU staff and students can use wireless or wired connections at other participating institutions where they use eduroam. Find out more about eduroam.

Visiting other eduroam sites
You may need to check with staff at the site that you will be visiting to find out what eduroam facilities are available there. Once you are at the remote site you will be prompted for your eduroam username and password. You should use your normal NTU username (e.g. com3other) followed by @ntu.ac.uk and then your normal login password. Note: even though this contains an @ sign, it is not your email address, it is your login name followed by @ntu.ac.uk.

You should follow any local instructions issued by the computing service at the institute that you are visiting regarding security, access restrictions and acceptable use policies. Note that you are also still bound by the NTU Acceptable Use Policy.PDF icon Where the policies and regulations differ, the most restrictive applies.

Once authenticated you should usually have access to at least web browsing. This will allow you to access your NTU email via our Outlook Web Access. You can also access other web based NTU resources such as NTUanywhere. As a guest you will not normally have access to the visited institution's facilities such as applications, printing, etc.

Configuring your device to use eduroam
Automatically configure your wireless connection:

  • Windows XP/7/8 Zip (Download the setup tool. Unzip the file and follow the setup guide).

Visitors: staff and students visiting from other institutions


Visitors from institutions participating in the eduroam service can use our wireless network to access the internet and their resources.

Accessing IT services for academic visitors to NTU
Janet is the UK's Joint Academic Network and connects the UK's education and research organisations to each other, as well as to the rest of the world through links to the global Internet. NTU participates in the Janet eduroam service and visitors to NTU from other participating Janet UK organisations can connect to their home services using a wireless access point at NTU.

NTU has wireless coverage across all three sites. In addition to any acceptable use policies at your home institution, by using these facilities on our network you are also agreeing to the NTU Acceptable Use Policy.PDF icon

Information for visitors, Janet eduroam service
Visitors to NTU wishing to use the eduroam service should, before coming to NTU, ensure that your home institution participates in the Janet eduroam service.

Nottingham Trent University supports eduroam Tier Two using IEEE 802.1X authentication (WPA2 with AES) via the eduroam wireless SSID.

Eduroam visitors from other institutions should contact their own institution for any client configuration assistance.

Guests - ntu-guest

The guest wireless access service (ntu-guest) is a restricted service which is provides access from a laptop or mobile device to public web pages and web-based email only.

The service is for guests visiting an NTU staff member or attending an NTU organised event/conference.

There is no requirement for any laptop or mobile device to be checked, configured or registered for use on the service.

Your guests can connect to the wireless by:

  • From the list of available wireless networks connect to ntu-guest
  • Open the web browser on the device
  • Check the terms and conditions
  • Enter an email address
  • Click Accept

If a guest comes from an organisation that is part of the international eduroam community, and they have already configured their computer at their home organisation, then they will be able to use eduroam at NTU. Otherwise, guests should use ntu-guest.

Nottingham Conference Centre (NCC) – delegates

NCC delegates are administered by the NCC staff and can use the wireless network NottinghamConferenceCentre while in the NCC. You may also be asked to use the ntu-guest wireless network. Delegates should contact the NCC staff for information on configuration.

Members of the public

Unfortunately we cannot provide free Wi-Fi style access for the public, e.g. in university coffee shops, or for people just walking across the campus.
